One of the top links on Reddit right now is to a video made by a young kid who's new to YouTube. Sir Fedora, who recently created his YouTube channel, was celebrating after getting one "like" on his first video. He’s as goofy as you’d expect a middle school kid to be, but he’s a natural on camera and fun to watch. The kid has a bright future in entertainment if he keeps it up.
Reddit user dragonboltz headlined his post with a request for other Redditors to subscribe to Sir Fedora and they’ve responded in a big way. The Reddit thread has 2,983 comments after just six hours (that’s a lot on Reddit) and Sir Fedora himself now has 16,673 subscribers on YouTube. His video celebrating his first like has 48,569 likes and he's being followed by more than 4,000 people on Twitter, firmly placing him in the 1% of all users. He is now the 1%.
I imagine that Sir Fedora is having quite a day. The Internet thinks he’s awesome.
I just hope he doesn’t feel any pressure now that he’s up on the virtual stage.
Just keep doing what you’re doing, Sir Fedora. Just keep having fun with it and we’ll keep watching.
